I’ve grown tired of discussing ‘omni-theism'(i.e. OT). By ‘omni-theism’, I mean the position that there exists an entity which is all-powerful, all-knowing, all-good, and all-loving. Even if you want to water down OT, I’m tired of that too. By ‘water down’ I mean a position like- for instance- that there exists an entity that is very powerful, very knowledgeable, very good, and very loving.
One reason I’ve grown tired of discussing OT is dishonest tactics coming from certain theists who make appeals to things like, “God’s mysterious ways”. They are conceding that OT (or ‘God) can’t be falsified. If you were to sit back and honestly ask yourself what universe you would expect if OT is true, then you would come to the conclusion that this is not the universe you would expect on the assumption that OT is true: or, you’d say that OT has no explanatory power.
I’ve also come to the conclusion that not only are some theists (particularly apologists and “philosophers” of religion) completely irrational in maintaining their belief in OT, but they are also acting completely delusional by ignoring all the evidence to the contrary and insisting on things like there being “very strong” evidence for God. No there isn’t. Certainly there is not evidence beyond a reasonable doubt. If you want to know the reasons I’ve come to these conclusions, my past posts will educate you. Yes, I am partially venting and ranting in this post; nevertheless, my feelings and frustrations surrounding some theists aren’t without rational and moral justification.
Perhaps I can write about new topics; however, I don’t find myself to be a very entertaining writer. I also am not the best when it comes to grammer, syntax, and so on. But I suppose one could object that this is a blog and not a dissertation. (1)(2)
(1) I’ve also lost interest in discussing ‘supernaturalism’ in general.
(2) I do think it’s important to fight sophistry. It’s also important to teach critical thinking and skepticism–this can’t be emphasized enough.
